We are gathering information on the possibility of a charter bus trip to Branson, MO, next November (probably the week following Thanksgiving, 3-4 day trip).  The package will probably include tickets to the Dixie Stampede (dinner and show), and the Show Boat (dinner).

In order to make plans, we have to start early and need to know if there is enough interest in participating.  We had some members sign up at our December meeting, but ask that if you are interested, please attend our January meeting on Tuesday, January 10, 7:00 p.m., AFGE Local 916, 7125 South Air Depot Boulevard.  After we know how many are interested, I can talk with the charter people to develop an itinerary and a price per individual.  Hope to see you in January!
